Tim's Want List
Phone: (316) 634-1877

last updated: (April 26, 2015)

(updated the SHOTSHELL BOXES that I am seeking for my collection!) note-About half the P.R.Goodwin prints have been sold! The only Guns that I am collecting are STAINLESS STEEL rifles and shotguns. These could be any model that were produced by Winchester Repeating Arms Co. during the period of 1930/1934. Please call or email if you have any Winchester Rifle or shotguns (even if you only have the barrel itself)!

For the past year I have been liquidating those advertising pieces that were post World War II, of my lifetime WINCHESTER ADVERTISING collection. I had previously sold my WINCHESTER GUN collection, and now only a very few guns remain. You can view those items currently for sale by going to the LINK at the top of the page marked "Tim's For Sale list"

I have just added a list of non-WINCHESTER shotshell boxes that I am currently collecting. This list is featured below and is kept updated, so if you have any of these items, please give me a call or email.

IMMEDIATELY after the new section on non-WINCHESTER shotshell boxes, is a full listing of my current WINCHESTER WANTS!. Again if you have any of these items, please give me a call or a email!
